During the weekend, some more CAD (computer aided design) images of the Apple iPhone 8 were disseminated from the Twitter account of Benjamin Geskin. While these are not images of a finished product of course, it does appear that they were made with Apple's plan "A" in mind. That plan calls for Touch ID to be embedded under the touchscreen display. But over the last three months, there has been talk about Apple having problems implementing this design. Samsung had a similar idea in mind for the Galaxy S8/S8+ fingerprint scanner, but couldn't get it done in time. That is why the fingerprint reader is found in an awkward position right next to the rear-facing camera on both Samsung models.
Apple's plan "B" also calls for a rear-facing Touch ID; however it should be noted that the round circle you see on the CAD designs represents the placement of the Apple logo. Whether Touch ID will be virtual and found under the display, or a physical button located on back of the handset is something we just might have to wait those three aforementioned months to discover.
As for the images that you'll find in the slideshow, they do contain some of the features that we have been seeing on other leaks such as the vertically positioned dual-rear cameras, and the sensors on the top of the front screen. The back is reportedly made with glass so that the device can be charged wirelessly.
As we get closer to September, we can expect an exponential increase in the number of leaks, and the quality of the information tipped. That means you should plan on checking in often for the latest on the eagerly awaited Apple iPhone 8.

I don't like that cutout up top like that with the display... But I'm hearing that the 2 screen parts that curved up around the earphone piece and sensors will be permanent black status bars for cellular/ wifi so with OLED maybe it won't be that bad cause of true blacks but yeah

I've tried correcting him... he won't listen to anything, or anyone, who knows more about the subject. I've even linked him to Anandtech and similar outlets to explain how wrong he truly is. Take my word for it Aziz, just like coke head prostitutes from West Texas, he isn't worth your time trying to save. Just treat him like an Alt-Right website: avoid all contact! God bless... Kiko

Still really looking forward to the iPhone 8 but I've got to say how disappointed I am in them not making any major design changes. Sure the bezels are way smaller, but it's essentially the same look people (including many Apple fans) have been complaining about for years. Pretty sure Apple will surprise us with some kinda special functionality though.

Cliché maybe, but Steve Jobs wouldn't have let that camera top radius not sit parallel with the body's top corner radius. Jony Ive is a s**t designer without a boss who actually gives a crap around. :p
